MASSIVE TURN OUT FOR GASFIELD FREE RALLY IN LISMORE TODAY
Organisers of today’s Gasfield Free event in Lismore have described the day as a huge success. An estimated 8,000 people from across the Northern Rivers region turned up in Lismore today for the declaration, march and rally.
“The determination and commitment of the community of the Northern Rivers to remain Gasfield Free is undeniable,” said Gasfield Free coordinator and rally organiser Elly Bird.
“This community is saying loud and clear that they want full cancellation of the licenses across the region, and nothing less will serve.”
“Today’s event makes it very clear that opposition to invasive gasfields in the region is not going away.”
“The NSW government needs to take decisive action and join Labor and the Greens in making a commitment to permanently protect our region,” she said.
